Foundationally, I am not partisan. I have confronted—face to face—numerous Republicans running for office who have stood for wrong values. I have worked hard to defeat some Republicans.
Why? Because they defied God's ways. I have been open about my criticism of some within the Republican Party. My commitment is to Scripture. My commitment is to biblical principles of governance.
In this article, however, I am going to focus on Democrats.
Here are seven reasons why you should vote Democrat:
- Higher prices.
- Continuing inflation.
- Rapidly rising cost of food.
- Drag queens telling stories to children.
- Perversion and debauchery to flourish in our streets with great "pride."
- Religious liberty destroyed.
- To squelch free speech.
(Note: the above is based on the Democratic platform, and positions held by many high-level Democrat elected officials.)
And if...if...if you vote Republican, you (assuming you care about biblical values) need to make sure your candidate adheres to Scriptural truth. For example, 47 Republican members of the House of Representative (that is 22% of them) recently voted for that for which God destroyed Sodom.
Thus, the ultimate issue is not whether one is Democrat or Republican. The ultimate issue is whether the elected official in conformity with the One who invented government and who establishes nations?
To the extent that a nation follows the biblical principles of governance, to that extent there is a reduction of human pain, suffering and poverty. To the extent that a nation refuses to follow the biblical principles of governance, to that extent there will be an increase in human pain, suffering and poverty.
Simply stated, God is loving. He wants our communities and nations to flourish, to have tranquility, peace and to prosper. He did not write "the book," and then say, "Oh wow, I forgot about the whole government thing!"
God knows best, even when it comes to government. His ways are always righteous and holy. The Bible has the life-giving foundations for all our governmental and political issues.
